Thank you to Matt Dean, Republican-Dellwood for putting a huge spotlight on the work of one of our own.  This will bring more attention to the work of writers; bravo to Gaiman for defending his time, writing and career.  Everything begins with words and without talented writers our culture would suffer.  Words – so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.  ~Nathaniel Hawthorne  LA Carlson
